I am not a huge fan of Target collections. In the past, I have scoured the internet and visited the stores for styles with quality that made me less than excited. But this morning was different.
When I woke up at 7:45 this morning, I wasn’t even thinking about Prabal Gurung For Target. But after seeing a tweet from Gabi Gregg, I decided to hop on target.com to take a peek at the pieces. I was impressed, but as with every Target collection, quality is hard to tell online. I decided that I was up for the day and headed down to Target (1 Mifflin Street) at 8:30 am.
The store wasn’t crowded, but there were definitely plenty of young women wandering around with their stash of brightly colored pieces. I walked (ran) immediately to the display and started grabbing. When I was there at 8:30, I did not see many pieces below a size 6. Lucky for me, my size was there in almost everything I wanted. I did ask the really sweet dressing room attendant if she had a dress on the rack to put back in my size, and she did! Lucky lucky.
The dressing rooms had a short wait but nothing major. I tried on 9 pieces and loved almost everything. The fit was great for curvier women, and the only major flop for me was the peplum top. The quality was some of the best I’ve seen from a Target collection, and other than a few lackluster zippers, I was really happy with it. I was in and out in an hour, and when I left, there were still plenty of items on the racks. I did not check out the accessories or shoes, but based on the clothing display, I’d say you still have a good shot of finding some pieces.
Check out the goodies I picked up:
I was literally grinning with excitement while trying on each of these pieces. Definite scores. There were two honorable mentions that I hemmed and hawed over for a bit, but decided not to go with. If you’re interested in the dress, I recommend sizing up.
Are you headed down to the Philadelphia Target this morning for the Prabal Gurung collection? What pieces are you most excited about? Tell me, because I need someone to discuss this with other than my boyfriend…. 🙂 xx
